Late Extract Addition
« on: October 06, 2015, 11:27:12 AM »
I have been boiling my malt extracts for 60 minutes and have noticed a caramel flavor in my lighter beers. I recently discovered the late addition method which may help with this issue and realized BeerSmith allows me to incorporate this into my recipes. My question is do I add multiple ingredient lines for my DME? For example:

20% DME for 60 minutes
80% DME for 15 minutes

It seems obvious this would be the way to do it but I just want to be sure.
Thanks for the help.

Yes, that would be the correct way to enter it into a recipe in BeerSmith.  Doing it this way will separate each addition with the correct amount and addition time.
